193 – Dr. Chelsea Bond

Dr. Chelsea Bond is a Munanjahli and South Sea Islander woman and a senior lecturer at the University of Queensland. She’s worked and researched extensively in the area of Aboriginal health and regularly writes and speaks about race and racism in Australia today.

In this conversation, Chelsea reflects on how the recent Black Lives Matter uprising has played out in Australia, her personal experiences with the police, the fierceness of Black women in this struggle and the intersection of racial power structures and class.
